Born in 1970, just three years after the landmark 1967 Australian Aboriginals Referendum that granted constitutional citizenship rights to Indigenous peoples, Moore is celebrated for his compelling large-scale installations. His artworks serve as poignant explorations of the complex intersections between personal narratives and the official histories of Australia’s colonial past, engaging with themes of identity, intercultural understanding, and racism. Through his evocative creations, Moore invites viewers to confront the enduring tensions inherent in Australia’s cultural landscape, fostering critical reflection and dialogue on pressing societal issues.

Drawing inspiration from tales of giants rooted in the folklore of Venice and beyond, their project serves as a poignant commentary on themes of power dynamics, humanity, and the ever-evolving landscape. With their boundary-pushing vision and collaborative ethos, the Petticoat Government promises to deliver an immersive and thought-provoking experience for Biennale attendees.

Republic of Benin – Arsenale

The Republic of Benin marks its inaugural presence at the Venice Biennale with the announcement of its national Pavilion, poised to make a significant impact under Nigerian curator Azu Nwagbogu’s leadership. Renowned for his steadfast advocacy for contemporary African art and photography, Nwagbogu’s leadership at Lagos’s African Artists’ Foundation since 2007 and directorship of the LagosPhoto Festival since 2010 underscore his expertise in the field.

Titled ‘Everything Precious Is Fragile,’ the exhibition curated by Nwagbogu promises a deep dive into the rich tapestry of Benin’s history and culture. From poignant reflections on the legacy of the slave trade to explorations of the Amazon motif, spirituality, and the revered Vodun religion, the showcase traverses both historical and contemporary realms. Notably, the exhibition delves into the Gèlèdé philosophy, spotlighting the concept of ‘rematriation’—a feminist perspective on restitution advocating for the return of objects and Beninese philosophies predating colonialism.

The curatorial team, which includes Yassine Lassissi, curator at La Galerie Nationale du Bénin, and architect Franck Houndégla, will guide visitors through an immersive experience featuring the works of four esteemed artists: Ishola Akpo, Moufouli Bello, Romuald Hazoumè, and Chloé Quenum. With its compelling thematic focus and diverse array of artistic voices, the Benin Pavilion is poised to captivate audiences and spark critical dialogue on pressing sociocultural issues on the global stage.

This immersive exhibition offers a profound exploration of Tupinambá’s heritage, highlighting their enduring journey of resistance and resurgence amidst ongoing challenges.

Tupinambá’s participation in the Biennale not only enriches the cultural tapestry of the Event but also offers a poignant reflection on the theme set forth by curator Adriano Pedrosa, “Foreigners Everywhere.” By shedding light on the longstanding marginalisation faced by Brazil’s indigenous communities within their ancestral lands, Tupinambá’s perspective adds a vital layer of discourse to the global conversation on displacement and identity.

Curated by Arissana Pataxó, Denilson Baniwa, and Gustavo Caboco Wapichana, the exhibition will also witness a symbolic renaming of the Brazil Pavilion to the Hãhãwpuá Pavilion. The name “Hãhãwpuá” holds deep significance for the Pataxó people, representing the territory that was Brazil before the arrival of colonisers—a poignant reminder of the multifaceted histories and identities that have shaped the nation.

Chile’s Pavilion at the upcoming Venice Biennale will feature the acclaimed artist Valeria Montti Colque, whose personal history of exile during Chile’s military dictatorship serves as a poignant backdrop to her artistic journey. Born in Stockholm in 1978 to a family displaced by political turmoil, Colque’s work delves into the intricate layers of diasporic identity and the interconnectedness of ancestral nations across vast geographical distances.

The exhibition “Cosmonación” draws inspiration from anthropologist Michel S. Laguerre’s exploration of diasporic communities and their enduring ties to their homeland. Through a multifaceted exploration of nationhood, Colque navigates the complexities of belonging, weaving together narratives that transcend borders and boundaries.

At the heart of the exhibition stands Colque’s monumental installation, “Mamita Montaña” (Mother Mountain), a towering structure composed of carpets, printed textiles, photographs, and ceramic pieces. Standing over five meters tall, this monolithic creation symbolises resilience and collective memory, inviting viewers to engage with the artist’s profound reflections on ritual, politics, and community.

Curated by Wang Xiaosong and Jiang Jun, the China Pavilion at the 60th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia will feature Zhu Jinshi’s rice paper installation Du Fu Tower.

Croatia’s representation at the Venice Biennale will be led by artist Vlatka Horvat, who responds to curator Adriano Pedrosa’s evocative theme of ‘Foreigners Everywhere’ with a captivating project titled “By the Means at Hand.” This innovative endeavour explores the notion of improvised transport systems, a ubiquitous phenomenon both in Croatia and across the globe.

Curated by esteemed art historian Antonia Majača, the Croatian Pavilion will serve as a platform to showcase the works of ‘foreign’ artists, each delivered to Venice through improvised means. Drawing inspiration from informal networks of friends and family who facilitate the transportation of packages, letters, and other essentials between countries, Horvat’s project sheds light on the interconnectedness of global communities and the resourcefulness of individuals in navigating cross-cultural exchanges.

Through an array of thought-provoking artworks, Horvat invites viewers to contemplate the intricate web of human connections that transcend geographical borders.

Eva Kotátková’s thought-provoking project, “The Heart of a Giraffe in Captivity,” takes centre stage in the Czech and Slovak Republic Pavilion, offering a poignant exploration of human-animal relationships and the complex intersection of politics, institutions, and the natural world. Through this immersive installation, Kotátková delves into the tragic tale of Lenka the Giraffe, a symbol of Czechoslovakia’s historical policy of acquiring animals from the Global South for display in local zoos.

Lenka’s journey, from her capture in Kenya in 1954 to her short-lived existence in captivity at the Prague Zoo, is a powerful metaphor for themes of emotional attachment, displacement, and belonging. Kotátková’s project sheds light on the ethical implications of human intervention in the lives of animals and prompts viewers to reflect on the consequences of such actions.

Collaborating with artists and composers Himali Singh Soin and David Tappeser, Kotátková presents a multifaceted narrative that resonates with audiences emotionally and intellectually.

A rising star in the art world, Ziemele boasts an impressive academic background. She graduated from the Art Academy of Latvia with a degree in painting and further honed her craft with a postgraduate degree from the Interdisciplinary and Experimental Painting study programme at the Dresden Academy of Fine Arts.

For the Latvian Pavilion, Ziemele unveils her latest project, “O day and night, but this is wondrous strange… and therefore as a stranger give it welcome.” This innovative endeavour draws inspiration from the timeless work of science fiction by Edwin A. Abbott, known by his pen name Square, “Flatland” (1884). It promises to captivate audiences with its exploration of dimensions and perception, echoing themes from Abbott’s seminal work.

Ziemele’s artistic prowess was recently showcased in her solo exhibition, “The Sun with Teeth,” which graced the prestigious Dome Hall of the Latvian National Museum of Art earlier in 2023. Now, under the curatorship of Budak, Ziemele’s latest venture is poised to push boundaries and challenge conventional notions of space and existence on the global stage of the Venice Biennale.

Lebanon – Arsenale

Mounira Al Solh, from Beirut, is set to take centre stage as the representative of the Lebanon Pavilion at the prestigious Venice Biennale. Having experienced firsthand the tumultuous Lebanese Civil Wars (1975–90), Al Solh’s artistic oeuvre poignantly reflects themes of displacement and the plight of women, intricately woven into untold microhistories.

Spanning diverse mediums, including painting, performance, textile, video, and installation, Al Solh’s works delve deep into the complexities of the human experience. Her recent masterpiece, “A Day is as Long as a Year” (2022), showcased in a solo exhibition at Gateshead’s BALTIC Centre for Contemporary Art, is a testament to her collaborative spirit and commitment to amplifying marginalised voices.

In this groundbreaking project, Al Solh collaborated with 31 women from various corners of the globe, including Afghanistan, Iran, Lebanon, Turkey, the Netherlands, and South Africa. Together, they crafted an Iranian Qajar-era tent adorned with poignant representations of the migrant experience. Mark Rappolt aptly notes that the work transcends mere storytelling, speaking volumes about the solidarity among women and offering glimpses of hope amidst adversity.

With Nada Ghandour, the esteemed curator of the Lebanon Pavilion in 2022, at the helm once again, Al Solh’s upcoming showcase promises to be a profound exploration of resilience, compassion, and the enduring power of art to bridge divides and inspire change.

Under the meticulous curation of Valentinas Klimašauskas and João Laia, and with the creative guidance of architects Ona Lozuraitytė and Petras Išora, the exhibition promises to transcend traditional boundaries, delving into the “inflammations” surrounding human and planetary bodies.

Commissioned by the Lithuanian National Museum of Art, led by the esteemed Arūnas Gelūnas, Pakui Hardware’s artistry offers a compelling exploration of entanglement, where the dichotomies of scientific progress and the perils of neoliberal biopower converge. As Martin Herbert eloquently articulated in a previous profile, their work navigates the intricate interplay between life extension and the allure of scientism, unveiling a thought-provoking narrative that resonates deeply in today’s complex world.

Luxembourg – Arsenale

In a departure from traditional exhibition formats, the Luxembourg Pavilion is set to transform into a dynamic shared production space throughout the Biennale. Spearheaded by Luxembourgish artist and musician Andrea Mancini in collaboration with the Brussels-based design collective Every Island, the innovative project, titled ‘A Comparative Dialogue Act’, promises to redefine the boundaries of artistic expression.

Fusing their shared interests in sound and performativity within architectural spaces, Mancini and Every Island will orchestrate a series of overlapping performances, inviting guest artists to contribute to the evolving soundscape.

Matthew Attard
Matthew Attard

Malta – Arsenale

In a historic first, Matthew Attard will lead Malta’s representation at the upcoming Biennale, marking the inaugural occasion that the Maltese Pavilion entrusts its space to a solo artist from the island nation. Curated by Sara Dolfi Agostini and Elyse Tonna, Attard’s exhibition, “I WILL FOLLOW THE SHIP,” promises to be a groundbreaking fusion of cultural heritage, drawing, and AI technology.

At the heart of Attard’s vision lies a fascination with historical images of ship graffiti. This quintessentially Mediterranean art form is a visual testament to the region’s rich maritime history. Attard endeavours to weave together these evocative symbols with cutting-edge AI technology through a newly commissioned artwork, offering a contemporary reimagining of tradition in a rapidly evolving world.

According to the pavilion team, in an era defined by pressing concerns such as climate change and the encroachment of technology, the humble marks of hope found in ship graffiti take on a profound symbolic significance within the collective human consciousness.

Renzo Martens and the Cercle d’Art des Travailleurs de Plantation Congolaise (CATPC)

Netherlands – Giardini

Renzo Martens and the Cercle d’Art des Travailleurs de Plantation Congolaise (CATPC) have been selected to represent the Netherlands. Emerging from the collaboration between the Dutch artist and Congolese plantation workers in Lusanga (formerly Leverville, a colonial-era hub for Lever plantation operations), the collective has gained international recognition for its innovative approach to art and social commentary.

Martens first gained prominence with his 2008 film “Episode III: Enjoy Poverty,” a thought-provoking exploration of the exploitation of poverty in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Through his travels in the DRC, Martens challenged local photographers to confront the complexities of the international media economy and the Western appetite for images of suffering, encouraging them to harness their poverty and instability for financial gain.

Described by J.J. Charlesworth as a work that “forces us to face the uncomfortable question of economic power imbalances,” Martens’ film sheds light on the enduring challenges faced by many Africans despite significant aid efforts. Martens and his Congolese collaborators are set to unveil their latest exhibition at White Cube in Lusanga, coinciding with the Dutch Pavilion’s presentation. This ambitious project promises to provoke critical reflection on issues of exploitation, poverty, and the power dynamics inherent in global art and commerce.

Inspired by the rich traditions of Cantonese Opera, the project promises to be a captivating exploration of sound and imagery. Asrin Haidari, the exhibition’s curator, expressed excitement about the collaboration, stating, “Our three invited participants are all phenomenal storytellers who use sound and images to amalgamate conflicting feelings of national identity, involving parallel experiences of alienation and cultural affinity.”

With its innovative approach and emphasis on storytelling through art, the Joint Nordic Gesamtkunstwerk project is poised to offer visitors a unique and thought-provoking experience at the Biennale.

Under the thoughtful curation of Ana Elizabeth Gonzalez, Monica Kupfer, and Luz Bonadies, this collaborative project will shed light on pressing issues surrounding the migration crisis.

With a keen focus on the Panamanian context, particularly the movement of migrants traversing the tropical jungle between Panama and Colombia – the sole land route linking South America to Central America – the exhibition promises to offer a poignant exploration of the human experience amid displacement and geographical boundaries.

Through newly commissioned works and innovative artistic expressions, Alfaro, De Obaldia, De Dier, and Merel are poised to engage audiences with thought-provoking reflections on the intersection of human bodies and the natural landscape, inviting visitors to contemplate the profound impact of migration on both individuals and environments.



The Philippines Pavilion at the Venice Biennale will showcase the thought-provoking works of artist Mark Salvatus, whose creative endeavours offer unique insights into the intricacies of everyday urban life and the complex narratives of national history. Through his innovative approach, Salvatus seeks to engage audiences in reinterpreting societal dynamics and political landscapes, a concept he aptly dubs ‘Salvage Projects.’

Selected following a rigorous national open call for proposals, Salvatus’s exhibition, titled “Kabilang-tabing ng panahong ito” (Behind the curtain of this age), draws inspiration from the words of Filipino religious leader Hermano Pule. Pule led a courageous resistance movement against the Spanish Catholic Church during the colonial era.

The exhibition will pivot around the ethno-ecologies of Mount Banahaw, situated on the outskirts of Salvatus’s hometown in Lucban. Delving into themes of mysticism, modernity, and the profound echoes of the past, the show promises to explore the rich cultural tapestry of the Philippines.

Curated by Carlos Quijon Jr., the Pavilion is poised to provide visitors with a thought-provoking journey into the intersecting realms of history, spirituality, and contemporary society.

Poland – Giardini

In a dramatic turn of events, Poland has made a surprising decision regarding its Pavilion at the Venice Biennale. Following last fall’s landmark election, which ushered in a coalition of three parties and ousted the right-wing Law and Justice party from power, the new Minister of Culture, Bartłomiej Sienkiewicz, has undertaken a significant overhaul of the original project.

The initial proposal, crafted by Ignacy Czwartos, was titled “Polish Exercises in the Tragedy of the World: Between Germany and Russia.” The ambitious project aimed to showcase 35 paintings portraying instances of violence inflicted upon Poles by German and Russian aggressors. However, Minister Sienkiewicz opted for a change in direction.

In a bold move, the Pavilion will feature an Open Group project comprising artists Yuriy Biley, Pavlo Kovach, and Anton Varga. This Ukrainian collective, established in 2012 in Lviv, brings a wealth of artistic prowess and perspective. Notably, they previously represented Ukraine at the 56th Biennale in 2015.

Their upcoming project, “Repeat after Me II,” promises to be a poignant collective portrait of witnesses to the conflict in Ukraine. Curated by Marta Czyż, the Open Group selection comes amidst the controversy surrounding Czwartos’s initial appointment last November.


Palazzo Franchetti, San Marco 2847, 30124 Venezia VE, Italia.

Renowned artist and curator Mónica de Miranda, choreographer Vânia Gala and interdisciplinary historian Sónia Vaz Borges will spearhead Portugal’s presence at the Venice Biennale with their collaborative endeavour titled “Greenhouse.”

Their innovative project will transform the exhibition space into four distinct arenas: the Garden, the living archive, the school, and the assemblies. Through this multifaceted approach, “Greenhouse” aims to cultivate a dynamic “Creole garden” where critical dialogues on ecology, politics, and pedagogy intersect.

Central to the project is facilitating encounters between artists, the public, and diverse communities. By fostering these interactions, “Greenhouse” seeks to spark meaningful engagement and provoke thought-provoking discussions on pressing societal issues.

Romania – Giardini

The Romanian Pavilion at the Venice Biennale will showcase an insightful exhibition by acclaimed artist Șerban Savu, spanning the Romanian Pavilion in the Giardini and the New Gallery of the Romanian Institute of Culture and Humanistic Research in Venice.

Curated by fellow artist Ciprian Mureșan, who previously represented Romania in the 53rd edition of the Biennale, Savu’s “What Work Is” exhibition delves deep into the intricate history and intricate relationship between work and leisure. Drawing inspiration from historical realism and the ideology and propaganda art of the Eastern Bloc, the exhibition offers a thought-provoking exploration of these themes.

Within the Pavilion, visitors will encounter a captivating display of 40 paintings spanning four decades of Savu’s career. Additionally, the exhibition will feature plinths adorned with mosaics, presenting scenes that diverge from traditional heroic or monumental imagery, instead portraying moments of tranquillity and ambiguity. This multifaceted presentation promises to captivate audiences and spark meaningful reflections on contemporary society’s labour and leisure complexities.

San Marino

La Fucina del Futuro, Calle San Lorenzo 5063B, Castello

Renowned American artist Eddie Martinez has been selected to represent the Pavilion of San Marino. This is a departure from tradition for the world’s oldest republic, which has historically chosen international artists for its national Pavilion. This decision pays homage to San Marino’s rich history as a sanctuary and haven.

Titled “Nomader,” the exhibition aptly reflects the Biennale’s overarching theme of “Foreigners Everywhere,” while also cleverly playing on the American pronunciation of “no matter.” This choice of title underscores the concept of migration and nomadism, resonating deeply with Martinez’s own experiences of an itinerant upbringing.

Martinez’s diverse body of work, including drawings, paintings, and sculptures, navigates the delicate balance between abstraction and figuration. “My work is not tied to a school or genre,” remarked Martinez. “It is a kind of superabundance of thoughts and ideas that sometimes clarifies itself.”

Renowned curator Alison M. Gingeras will oversee the Pavilion’s curation, ensuring that Martinez’s unique artistic vision is presented to audiences with depth and resonance.

Saudi Arabia – Arsenale

Saudi Arabia has appointed Manal AlDowayan to represent the nation at the upcoming Event. Hailing from Dhahran, AlDowayan is celebrated for her participatory approach, delving into collective memory, the dynamics of forgetting, and the nuanced experiences of women.

Among her notable works is “Suspended Together” (2011), an installation featuring 200 fibreglass doves. Each dove encapsulates a permission-to-travel document generously donated by Saudi women ranging in age from six months to 60. These documents symbolise the bureaucratic hurdles Saudi women face when travelling independently.

AlDowayan’s recent participatory performance, “From Shattered Ruins, New Life Shall Bloom” (2023), showcased at the Guggenheim in New York, invited viewers to engage in collective deconstruction. Participants were encouraged to crush porcelain totems resembling paper scrolls adorned with antiquated texts and images concerning gender issues.

Through her thought-provoking works, AlDowayan confronts societal norms and advocates for the empowerment and visibility of women in Saudi Arabia and beyond.

Serbia – Giardini

Visual artist and scenographer Aleksandar Denić has been chosen to represent the Pavilion of Serbia at the upcoming exhibition. Entitled “Exposition Coloniale,” the showcase delves into the nuanced concepts of residence versus transience, housed within a Pavilion with a rich history of changing ownership among various nations.

Initially designated for Sweden and Greece before being acquired by Romania and former Yugoslavia, the Pavilion embodies a shifting identity and belonging narrative. Drawing from his own experiences of permanent displacement in Germany and other German-speaking regions, Denić aims to infuse the space with a palpable sense of “reflective discomfort.” Through this, visitors are encouraged to confront their notions of home and grapple with the feeling of being a foreigner in their own country.

The exhibition promises to be a multi-sensory experience, incorporating music, sounds, lighting, and heating systems. These sensory layers will blur the boundaries between the physical environment and the emotional realm, inviting viewers to engage with the space on a profoundly introspective level.

Curating this immersive journey is Ksenija Samardžija, who will guide visitors through Denić’s thought-provoking exploration of displacement, identity, and belonging.

Singapore – Arsenale

The Singapore Art Museum (SAM) has unveiled its selection for the Singapore Pavilion, with artist Robert Zhao Renhui set to take the spotlight.

Curated by Portia Malatjie, this extraordinary showcase is brought to fruition by the Institute of Creative Repair, a pioneering entity based in Johannesburg dedicated to harnessing the transformative power of arts, heritage, and culture to mend individuals, communities, institutions, and spaces.

Entitled “Quiet Ground,” the exhibition delves into the realm of repair within the context of feeling ‘foreign at home,’ resonating deeply with the overarching theme of the Biennale, “Foreigners Everywhere.” Through a multifaceted exploration spanning art in South Africa, the land as an educational forum, and the concept of repair through artistic expression, the Pavilion promises to provoke thought and stir emotions.

As visitors immerse themselves in the evocative soundscapes and engage with the thought-provoking public programs, they will be invited to contemplate the profound possibilities of healing and renewal amidst the complexities of contemporary existence. With “Dinokana (2024)” at its core, the South African Pavilion stands as a testament to the enduring power of art to illuminate, inspire, and effect meaningful change.

South Korea – Giardini

Renowned for her captivating and sensory-rich installations, Koo Jeong-a has been selected to represent the Pavilion of South Korea.

Spain – Giardini

Sandra Gamarra Heshiki, in collaboration with curator Agustin Pérez Rubio, has clinched the prestigious role of representing the Spanish Pavilion, a decision hailed by an independent judging panel. Hailing from Lima and born in 1972, Gamarra Heshiki brings to the forefront a profound interrogation of representation, commercialism, and appropriation, predominantly expressed through her figurative paintings. Notably, she has left her mark on esteemed platforms such as the 53rd Venice Biennale, the 29th São Paulo Biennale, and the 11th Berlin Biennale, where Pérez Rubio served as a co-curator.

Under the compelling title “Migrant Art Gallery,” the Spanish Pavilion embarks on an unprecedented journey by selecting an artist born overseas. Gamarra Heshiki, a Peruvian mixed-race woman of Peruvian-Japanese heritage, embodies a profound testament to Spain’s diverse artistic landscape. As articulated by the panel, her representation not only celebrates her active contribution to the artistic milieu since the turn of the 21st century but also underscores the Pavilion’s commitment to embracing a rich tapestry of cultural narratives.

Switzerland – Giardini

Swiss-Brazilian artist Guerreiro do Divino Amor has been selected to champion Switzerland’s presence at the upcoming exhibition with his thought-provoking project, “Super Superior Civilisations.” Delving into the intricate realm of ‘political mythologies,’ his work promises to unravel the motifs and visual strategies entrenched within this complex narrative tapestry.

According to the Pavilion’s organisers, Divino Amor’s creation offers a critical lens through which to examine the visual language embedded within national political myths. The project aims to stimulate profound reflections on the societal constructs that shape our collective consciousness by scrutinising their cultural resonance, hierarchical structure, and utilisation.

Heading the curation of this compelling endeavour is Andrea Bellini, whose seasoned expertise is poised to infuse the Pavilion with a nuanced and insightful perspective, ensuring a captivating exploration of the intersections between art, politics, and cultural identity.

With a keen eye on the overarching theme of the Biennale, “Foreigners Everywhere,” the Pavilion explores the evolving concept of the ‘Other’. Central to this discourse is the enigmatic figure of the trickster, steeped in mythological lore as a bridge between the mortal realm and the divine.

Through captivating artworks and evocative narratives, the Pavilion invites visitors to ponder the profound symbiosis between humans and nature while shedding light on the transformative role played by the trickster archetype in shaping our collective consciousness. With Bittoto’s curation at the helm, the Tanzanian Pavilion promises to offer a captivating and enlightening artistic journey at the heart of the Biennale.


Spazio Rava San Polo 1100

In a historic debut, the Timor-Leste Pavilion makes its maiden appearance at the Venice Biennale with Maria Madeira’s evocative project, Kiss and Don’t Tell. Drawing inspiration from the Biennale’s overarching theme, “Stranieri Ovunque—Foreigners Everywhere,” Madeira infuses her work with poignant reflections on displacement, rooted in her journey growing up in a refugee camp in Portugal alongside her mother.

Kiss and Don’t Tell intertwines themes of tenderness and trauma, encapsulating the intimacy of a kiss as a powerful metaphor for human experience. At the heart of the project is a mesmerising performance slated for the biennial’s opening days, where Madeira will delicately imprint lipstick markings on the Pavilion’s walls, accompanied by soul-stirring renditions of traditional songs from her Indigenous village in the Tetun language.

Hailing from Timor-Leste but now based in Perth, Australia, Madeira’s artistic oeuvre resonates deeply with her nation’s tumultuous history. Born amidst the strife of the Indonesian invasion in 1976, Madeira later returned to her homeland around its independence, becoming one of Timor-Leste’s most esteemed international artists.

The unveiling of the Timor-Leste Pavilion marks a significant milestone, coinciding with the 25th anniversary of the nation’s hard-won independence. Through Madeira’s captivating project, the Pavilion promises to offer visitors a poignant exploration of identity, memory, and resilience on the global stage of the Biennale.

UAE – Arsenale

The UAE Pavilion is set to showcase the compelling artistry of Emirati talent Abdullah Al Saadi, a returning figure who previously captivated audiences in the 2017 Biennale’s prominent exhibition. Al Saadi’s creative spectrum spans traditional painting and drawing to meticulously curating found objects.

In his poignant work “My Mother’s Letters” (1998-2013), Al Saadi tenderly preserves objects left behind by his mother during studio visits, methodically cataloguing them in an alternative alphabetical lexicon. Meanwhile, “Stone Slippers” (2013) offers a thought-provoking installation where boulder-crafted slippers, arranged uniformly, evoke a sense of Sisyphean endeavour, echoing the artist’s odyssey.

Reflecting on his artistic journey, Al Saadi eloquently expresses, “My art is the culmination of encounters with places, people, ideas, and aesthetics that define my everyday life and travels. Through visual documentation and introspective musings, I seek to elevate the mundane, transforming it over time.”

Guiding visitors through this immersive exploration of culture and identity is curator Tarek Abou El Fetouh, whose stewardship promises to enrich the viewing experience, inviting audiences to delve deeper into Al Saadi’s evocative narratives.

Net Making: Projects by Katya Buchatska, Andrii Dostliev and Lia Dostlieva, Daniil Revkovskyi and Andrii Rachynskyi, Oleksandr Burlaka, and the communities with whom the artists have worked together. Curators: Viktoria Bavykina and Max Gorbatskyi, Commissioner: Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine, represented by Taras Shevchenko, Deputy Minister for European Integration.

Net Making is a group exhibition curated by Viktoria Bavykina and Max Gorbatskyi, which draws from the practice of collective weaving of camouflage nets as a metaphor for joint horizontal actions.

“We thought of a key metaphor that would reflect today’s Ukraine. Ukrainians are uniting: they take to the streets, volunteer to fight, and gather to weave camouflage nets. Weaving nets is a process that encompasses more than just making a net to help the army. It is a recognition of a joint action that is beneficial for each other and for the country. This is not a top-down decision,” the curators comment.

Taipei Fine Arts Museum of Taiwan (organising institution), Taipei

Renowned video artist Yuan Goang-Ming has been chosen to represent Taiwan at the prestigious Venice Biennale.

Chen elucidated on the project’s ethos, remarking, “Human beings comprehend history not merely through chronological records but as an immersive experience, akin to the scent permeating the air – a tangible presence in our daily lives. Amidst an era fraught with uncertainty and discord, our collaboration aims to delve into time as a dynamic landscape and steadfastness as a form of resilient defiance.”

With Chen at the helm, Yuan’s showcase is poised to captivate audiences with its profound exploration of temporal fluidity and enduring resilience in the face of tumultuous times.

Presented in collaboration with Gagosian and inspired by the architecture of the Museo di Palazzo Grimani and the urban dynamics of Venice, The Arch within the Arc features new paintings by Rick Lowe that emerged from his consideration of the arch in architecture. Composed of acrylic paint and paper collage on canvas, the vibrant works balance geometric motifs and improvisational techniques. Radiating outward and turning in on themselves, Lowe’s images materialise via a painterly construction and deconstruction process that evokes infrastructure, mapping, and the experience of moving through the city. The paintings meditate on spatial, temporal, and social relationships, keeping with the artist’s interest in linking civic practice and visual expression.

Istituzione Fondazione Bevilacqua La Masa, Venice, will stage an exhibition of new works by Italian artist Guglielmo Castelli (b. 1987, Turin), opening Monday, 15 April 2024. The exhibition, curated by Milovan Farronato, brings together a new series of paintings, maquettes, textiles and knitted sculptures which, taken together, examine the thin boundary between fragility and violence. Castelli’s treatment of space is liquid: figures bend to and are restricted by their confines. Distorted perspective and a sense of enclosure bind the figures with their surroundings, synonymous with a child’s experience of growing and recomposing themselves, forming within and around their environment. The exhibition coincides with the opening of La Biennale d’Arte di Venezia 2024.

Bugno Art Gallery

Fondamenta Sant’Anna, Castello 996/A, Venezia

April 12 – June 13 2024

The exhibition provides s a captivating glimpse into Morucchio’s “Puzzling” project initiated in 2015 when, during the 56th Venice Biennale, the artist presented the multimedia installation The Rape of Venice at the Museum of Palazzo Mocenigo. A distinctive element of the installation was thousands of photographic tiles, casually arranged to deconstruct the geometric, hypomorphic, and zoomorphic patterns of the floor mosaic of St. Mark’s Basilica.

The Puzzling Classics project sees these tiles rearranged and repositioned in mosaic forms, creating fascinating reinterpretations of paintings by Renaissance masters. The exhibition features a selection of works from the Puzzling Renaissance series with reimagined subjects of paintings by Tintoretto, Giampietrino, Titian, Palma the Elder, Veronese, Giorgione, and Leonardo.
